I just built my first AR and I LOVED the whole experience (except waiting on shipping of course)...

I was just wondering why you didn't go with a middy? I was told that Spikes will give you pretty much whatever you want if you call and talk to them in person. Also, here is a link to a complete upper in mid length... I guess you would have to buy the rails system and install it yourself. It's not all that hard.

http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XSTU5035MOE&name=Spikes+Tactical+Mid-Length+5.56%2f.223+Upper&search=upper

BTW, even though it says they are OUT OF STOCK, they are just waiting on the handguards from Magpul. They will sell the upper minus the MOE handguard for $469 SHIPPED!!! That's a lot of gun for the price IMHO.

Make sure you post up pics whenever you finish it

I would love to get the Mid length gas system... BUT there is not an upper without the front sight tower.
the whole reason went with this one:
http://www.spikestactical.com/new/z/spikes-tactical-16-m4-le-upper-w9-bar-rail-556-p-477.html?zenid=ad3aea8376aa8f5a9190e5127b46c20a

1. doesn't have the front sight tower
2. comes with rail already (and its spike rail, i am cooky i like things to match)

But what I would really want is the Mid gas syst without the tower and comes with the rails....

=(

Can i get this?
